hour the lectern at the u.n. general assembly will belong to one of the world's most device sieve leaders. the brez of ghana. the person i'm peeking of none other than mahmoud amadinejad. you've heard of him. he's about to make his final address as the president of iran. it is not going to be standing room only especially since the u.s. delegation has just decided that it's going to boycott the whole process. not walk out, don't even walk in in the first place. here is the explanation that the u.s. delegation gave us. i'm going to read verbatim. spokeswoman erin pelton says i quote, mr. amadinejad once again uses his trip of the u.n. not to address the legitimate aspirations of the iranian people but to spout paranoid theories and repulsive slurs against israel. does not seem to be much need to read between any of those lines. in the past years western and israeli envoys have decided to come in but then do this walk right out again once amadinejad speaks. this was the scene in 2009. there they go. up and out. then in 2010 it was the same thing all over. ear p

president obama is changing topics. >> the president will address the u.n. general assembly and he's expected to focus on problems in libya, the middle east and iran. 9news now reporter kristin fisher is live outside the white house with the story. good morning, kristin. >> reporter: good morning, mike and andrea. president obama has plenty to talk about when he addresses the u.n. general assembly later today in new york. there's the civil war in syria, the recent attacks in libya and egypt and the possibility of iran developing a nuclear weapon. but the president is not going to be at the u.n. for long. he's taken some hits for it. the president arrived in new york city yesterday afternoon and he went straight for a sitdown not with world leaders but with the ladies of the view. in fact, the president will not be sitting down with any world leaders during the u.n. which is extremely rare. last year he had 13 meetings with world leaders during the u.n. so critics are accusing the president of putting his reelection efforts ahead of diplomacy but jay carney pointed out the president
